What is Zignature? It is a limited ingredient kibble that is made in the USA. All Zignature formulas contain no chicken, chicken fat, chicken meals, chicken eggs or chicken by-products…making it the perfect choice pets with a chicken sensitivity.

Additionally, it contains no corn, wheat or soy and is manufactured with all natural ingredients. You won’t find any fillers, artificial flavors, preservatives or colors in this food.

Plus, you will find that this limited ingredient food is potato free as well! Potatoes have a high glycemic index and can cause difficulties for dogs ~ even when on a grain free diet. That’s why Zignature uses chickpeas and garden peas as their binder. This is an awesome nutritionally complete meat diet and are made with turkey & turkey meal, Lamb & Lamb Meal or Trout & Salmon meal as the first and second ingredients.

This food is a great option for the allergy prone and steel stomach dog alike.  So what are you waiting for? Give it a try.

Are you feeding your dog fast food every day?

You could be if you are feeding a species inappropriate diet.

Much like us, our pets need an appropriate diet for a full and healthy life. While it’s true that we could survive on a diet that consists of only fast food, the quality of our health would not be great. And, chances are, we would meet an untimely death or massive medical bills due to high cholesterol and/or heart problems.

I know it’s difficult to hear, but the same holds true for our pets. If they are not getting the right nutrition, how can we expect them to lead full and healthy lives?

So, what does a species appropriate diet consist of?

Well, first and foremost, grain free is a must. Dogs thrive on quality protein and healthy fats.

One of the foods we recommend for a balance of both is Merrick Grain Free.

It comes in four protein varieties: Chicken, Duck, Pork and Buffalo. Each one contains sweet potato and provides balanced nutrition with real whole foods sourced from local farmers. This natural, grain free formula dog food is ideal for all life stages and all breeds of dogs with a focus on naturally nutrient rich ingredients to support overall health.

The proteins used in this food help build and maintain lean, healthy muscle tissue in your pooch. A healthy skin and coat is supported with omega fatty acids and joint health is supported with glucosamine.

These foods contain 70% protein and 30% fresh produce which fortifies your dog’s diet with potatoes, sweet potato, peas, apples and blueberries offering vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. The easily digestible carbohydrates like potatoes and sweet potatoes offer the benefit of sustained energy without upsetting grain-sensitive systems.

All of Merrick’s food is locally source farm fresh ingredients to ensure the highest quality. As a result, Merrick recipes don’t contain any ingredients from China and are made in their five-star kitchen and manufacturing facilities that uphold the strict guidelines well defined by the FDA.

Check out the Grain Free line of kibble from Merrick at any Two Bostons store today and get your pooch on the road to a long, healthy, happy life.
